Abstract This project centres around the genetic epidemiology of E. coli and K. pneumoniae causing BSIs in hospitals in Asia.
Description Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are a major threat to patient safety, and in locations with poor surveillance and infection control such infections can be associated with high mortality rates. The problem of hospital transmission of hazardous bacteria is further exacerbated by the emergence of a .. [more]
